"Are you rich?"
Sermon shared by David Hardee
Summary: At Calvary, debts were paid and riches were bestowed! So, are you rich?
Audience: General adults
Rich in what? Salvation, blessings of peace, happiness, and joy that sings in your heart! Riches that are true prosperity!
There four things I want us to look at in this verse. ARE YOU RICH? Letís study this passage together, and pray that we find these riches in our blessed Lord.
The first thing Paul shows us is:
1. THE LORDíS GRACIOUS PERSONALITY
"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus...."
The second thing Paul wants to bring our attention to is:
2. THE LORDíS GREAT PROSPERITY
"that though He was rich...."
Thirdly, Paul wants to reminds us of:
3. THE LORDíS GRINDING POVERTY
"yet for your sakes He became poor...."
Finally, Paul tells us, this all took place to show that this was for:
4. THE LORDíS GLORIOUS PURPOSE
"that you through His poverty might become rich."
So are you rich? You can be! Through the cross comes life! Through the cross comes peace and happiness! Through the cross comes a joy that is unspeakable. A joy that rings in your heart, and is uncontainable to keep inside your self, you canít help but have a smile on your face! Today, re-receive the happiness of your salvation in the wonderful, wonder-working Son of the Living God, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Pray, ask the Lord to pour out his love on you, his happiness, his peace, his joy, and all his heavenly riches on you. I promise that our great Lord will pour out all his riches on you! You will truly be BLESSED! Because:
"FOR YOU KNOW THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, THAT THOUGH HE WAS RICH, YET FOR YOUR SAKES HE BECAME POOR, THAT YOU THROUGH HIS POVERTY MIGHT BECOME RICH." [2CORINTHIANS 8:9] Amen! Hallelujah! What a Savior!
